         As For Me

           I write as I write

           People know what I write;

            what I mean when I write.


           No mystical message

           to confuse those that read

           what I write.


           I write for entertainment,

           no hidden intendment

           for one to weigh in one’s mind.


            My thoughts are open,

            no need to search for

            deeply hidden meaning.


            The pictures I draw are drawn

            in words so you see what

            I see.


            The pictures I draw are drawn

            in words so you feel what

            I feel.


            Love is written on pages of paper

            in black on white

            in words of scarlet desire.               


            My passion easily felt,

            easily sensed and simply seen:

            as man into woman,

            as woman onto man.


            No mistaking the heat of

            my words with hidden

            meaning along with

            barely decipherable emotion.


            Writing portrays me

            as one of  straightforward

            words void of shrouded



            Never minced or disguised,

            if the words are harsh with

            meanings sexually inclined,

            some may blush and turn away,

            but from me to you,

            as for me,

            I write as I write.

You have an authentic and enjoyable style, Mark!

We all must write what is in our heart and hope not to confuse the reader. Your work is always clearly understood to this poet, very well defined and always from the heart. I like the honest tone of this poem, telling us how you feel about what you write; one can never go wrong telling the unvarnished truth. A good read.

Mark, an honest and open poem. I admire your tenacity.

Much, peace, love and light,
Reviewed by Jerry Bolton 1/14/2012
Yep. You do, Mark. I'm pretty much like that too, although I have found myself writing differently from time to time. Still, I hope I am not too confusing, but when the muse directs your fingers on the keyboard, you must not resist,
